    Elon Musk Ends 2023 Revisiting His $1M ‘Vanity Trophy’ NFT

    Elon Musk recently revisited his 2021 NFT venture by questioning the fate of his musical NFT on his social media platform “X”.

  • In March 2021, Musk considered auctioning a tweet as an NFT featuring a song about NFTs, receiving a bid over a whopping $1 million.

  • However, at the last minute, Musk chose not to sell the NFT because "it didn't feel right to sell this particular digital artwork."

  • The NFT in question included a song and video clip highlighting NFT culture with a "Vanity Trophy" adorned with the terms "NFT" and "HODL”.

  • This news underscores the fluctuating nature of the NFT market and the personal values of creators in the digital art space.

  • In the upcoming year, he might reconsider and decide to sell the asset after all…

    Sotheby's Prepares for the New Year with Starry Night Auction

    Starting next year on a high note, Sotheby's Starry Night auction will display over 300 works from the Three Arrows Capital-affiliated Starry Night collection from January 23 to 30 — an extension of the GRAILS collection's success.

    • Starry Night includes works from renowned digital artists like XCOPY, Beeple, and Alpha Centauri Kid, focusing on unique pieces and pioneering generative AI art.

    • Vincent Van Dough, a pseudonymous collector, curated the 2021 collection for Three Arrows Capital, showcasing a diverse array of digital art.

    • The collection amassed over $20 million in 2023 and featured Dmitri Cherniak’s Ringers #879 (The Goose), which sold for an impressive $6.2 million, surpassing its high estimate.

    • Key pieces in the forthcoming auction include Otherworld's "The Garden", Alpha Centauri Kid's "til death do us part", Kjetil Golid's "Iterations II", and Helena Sarin's "K-Meanearest Neighbors".
